It's the way we think, act, speak, and love one another. It's in the way we raise our families, love our community and seek the good of others before ourselves. Here's what makes CROSSROADS CHURCH unique.
We confess belief in a triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Holy Spirit is God with us. We believe the Holy Spirit comforts us when we are in need and convicts us when we stray from God. We believe the Holy Spirit awakens us to God’s will and empowers us to live obediently.
We share the Christian belief that God redeems us through His death & resurrection on the cross. Our redemption is seen in our human life by the activity of the Holy Spirit, both in personal experience and in the community of believers.
We understand ourselves to be a part of Christ's universal Church when by adoration, proclamation, and service we become conformed to Christ.
We share with many Christian communities recognition of the authority of Scripture in matters of faith.
Our mission is to reach out in love and acceptance so all may become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. As a church we hope to become a Biblically functioning community by our core values below.
We accept people where they are and enable them to grow in their faith journey. The goal is to remove barriers in the church that keep people from a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe fully devoted followers should expect to sacrifice on behalf of persons seeking a faith relationship.
We acknowledge that life change occurs best in a small group of Christian disciples. Small groups are the church, not a program of the church.
We measure our success by the process (the way we do ministry) and not just the product (the ministry programs.) Biblical process involves loving relationships.
We acknowledge our dependence upon others and the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish our goals. Every member is a minister, and families matter to God and to the church.
We demonstrate compassion by modeling the servant nature of Jesus Christ. We expect to participate in missions on a local, state, national and global level.
We are intentional in giving God our best. Excellence honors God and inspires people and requires ongoing evaluation. It is doing the best with what God has given us.
Joy is fulfillment, not simply happiness. Here at CROSSROADS we experience joy produced by the Holy Spirit through studying God’s word individually, in small groups and in the larger community of faith.
We pursue vulnerability and humility, so we have genuine relationships with one another and God. Authenticity involves truth telling and Biblical conflict resolution.
We demonstrate the relevance of Jesus Christ where the intellectual and the emotional come together in a revelation about God. We expect continuous change in methodology.
